A night at the museum like no other…


Chippenham Museum presents an evening of circus sideshows and curious happenings all served with a glass of Scout & Sage Gin.

Drop in between 6pm and 8pm to enjoy an immersive experience themed by Chippenham Museum’s latest display ‘The Obscure Eye Presents…’  , a fanciful exploration of circus where drawings, costumes and cabinets of curiosities reveal the story of the Ringmaster, a Stag Beetle and his human wife, their circus family and performing fleas. Guests are invited to embrace the theme of the event, with dressing up encouraged!

Tickets include a welcome gin from the museum’s pop-up Gin Bar, provided by local independent producer Scout & Sage, with opportunity to purchase further drinks to enjoy whilst exploring the museum throughout the evening. Award winning Scout & Sage, based on an old fruit farm in Semington, produce London Dry Gin in small batches using traditional distilling methods.

On arrival guests will be given tokens to spend at the various circus sideshows. Guests will also encounter a number of characters from the circus as they explore the museum. Look out for the Strongman, Ring Master, Explorer and more!
